KIDNEYcon is an annual conference designed to provide updates in the latest advances in kidney care in a hands-on collaborative format. A key component of KIDNEYcon's mission is to build enthusiasm for the field of nephrology among residents and fellows. We also aim to facilitate collaborative research projects among participants of the conference. The conference is a platform for nephrologists and medicine trainees to interact with experts from across the nation and learn about and discuss recent advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease. The conference will feature six hands-on workshops that simulate realistic practice conditions, the Nephrology Education Summit which will focus on innovations in education within the nephrology field, and a scientific and clinical conference focusing on AKI and liver disease and kidney stones.
